Vanyel and Tylendel from Magic’s Pawn by Mercedes Lackey.
They won’t let me sing you love songs.
Do you mind, not hearing love songs?
While we both keep hearing of songs
Full of men and women’s bliss.
No gold ring can band our fingers,
And our touch must never linger.
Shadowdancer and Sunsinger
Never had to go through this.
They won’t let us show affection
Save behind my aunt’s protection.
For our lives must pass inspection,
And our love must find no voice.
We must realize it’s forbidden,
Something shameful to be hidden.
But it comes to us unbidden,
Never preference, never choice.
I could feel a life bond forming,
To a heart that needed warming,
While the world outside was storming,
But it cannot touch us here.
Such a bond cannot be broken,
But the passion it’s awoken
Must be unseen and unspoken
If a stranger chances near.
They tried to have me trained for battle,
And for long days in the saddle,
As if somehow they think that’ll
Make me what they want instead.
Could I stop my heart from beating,
Give up breathing, swear off eating?
Love means open joyful greeting,
Not just what you do in bed.
Loyal friend, despised and taunted,
You are all I’ve ever wanted.
But my dreams of you are haunted
By the need to play the game.
If our lives were someday famous,
And the bardic ballads claim us,
Would they think our love would shame us?
Would they dare to sing its name?
